Sly in the Morning

Madison-area progressive radio takes another hit. John "Sly" Sylvester’s daily call-in program has been booted from 93.7 WEKZ-FM.

Sylvester, a longtime liberal commentator, announced on his Facebook page that he learned of the change Friday. WEKZ is part of the southern Wisconsin/northern Illinois Big Radio regional chain of eight stations, based in Monroe. He will remain a DJ for the station.

President Barack Obama has failed to live up to his own words and the, albeit high, expectations of the American people. Whether its Bush's war policies, trade, financial reform, and even health care, the President has caved on too many issues and it's time for him to step aside. We need fundamental, systematic change and Obama has utterly failed to bring about that paradigm shift.

Former Attorney General Peg Lautenschlager explains Walker's defiance of Judge Sumi's order to temporary stop the publication of the budget repair bill. The taxpayers are paying for this judicial fandango when the Fitz brothers could abide by the open meetings law and pass the law again. Ms. Lautenschalger also talks about a possible constitutional crisis if Walker violates Judge Sumi's order and continues to pretend that the budget repair bill is law.

David Prosser presumptively declared victory yesterday. The man who label himself an independent on the court, made sure to thank Brian Schimming (frequent co-host with Vicki McKenna), Scott Jensen (heavily included in the Caucus scandals), and every conservative justice on the court. Prosser also announced he has hired notorious Republican lawyer Jim Troupis, who immediately went on the attack by saying any notion of a recount would be "frivolous" and a waste of money.

Conservative columnist Mike Nichols filed an open records request to see the police reports during the solid month of non-stop protests at the Capitol. Nichols chose to write about an incident where two teens were smoking dope in a tent on the Capitol grounds. Apparently, marijuana smoke was billowing out of the tent and officers could see the haze on the third floor of the Capitol. What do you think Mike Nichols was up to with this little story?

The Legislative Fiscal Bureau has revised its projections and says the State has an extra 600 million dollars in tax revenue over the three years. Will Governor Walker revise some of his draconian cuts to education, municipalities, and of course public workers? That would be a big fat NO. Scott Walker is trying to take credit for this extra revenue but these funds are a direct result of actions taken by the democratic legislature when Jim Doyle and the democrats were in charge.

The Packer lose yesterday was bad but seeing the Viking's Metrodome collapse certainly soften the blow. I don't think the beloved Minnesota Senator and former Vice President Hubert Humphrey desires the shame of having that dumpy stadium named after him. What's a more fitting name for the now deflated Metrodome?

President Obama looks feckless on this crisis in the gulf and it's not even really his fault. We all must share some of the blame, because we all use oil. Eight years of deregulation and corporate giveaways during the Bush years didn't help either but President Obama might end up walking away with the blame.

Republican candidate for Congress Chad Lee joins me and alleges that incumbent Tammy Baldwin doesn't even live in the second district she supposedly represents anymore. Baldwin doesn't make her address public because she's received death threats for being a public figure who's homosexual. Still, shouldn't she at least be required to verify to her constituency that she lives in the district?

Wisconsin Republicans are preparing to pass legislation to require a sonogram and a detailed description of the fetus for every abortion performed in the state. Remember, Governor Walker opposes abortion in ALL cases including incidents of rape, incest, even if the mother's life is threaten.

The same people who applaud this government intrusion into people's lives, went crazy during the health care reform...

Republicans are going nuts over a PSA put out by the Labor Department advocating for fair payment for illegal workers. I am so sick of conservatives complaining about illegal immigration when it their very trade policy that brought them here in the first place. Workers, even if they are here illegally, still deserve to be paid an honest wage.

He then attacks Russ Feingold for running spots that expose Ron Johnson's double-talk on the second amendment. I'm sick and tired of Lueders and the rest of the media focusing on Feingold's ads.
